[Comic for Wednesday, October 29, 2014]

Colonel: And with THIS, we should be able to speak freely without our hosts eavesdropping upon us...

Colonel: [turning away and glancing over his shoulder at her] Aside from this device and my explicit instructions NOT to?

Colonel: [pointing at the back of his neck] The three of you should now be immune to their little "puppeteering" trick, as I am. The small patches I placed on your necks should see to that...
